Spire Nottingham Hospital

Halliday Meecham Architects have recently started construction on a new hospital for client Spire Healthcare. The hospital will be a centre of excellence in the delivery of healthcare and will provide accommodation including oncology and endoscopy units and a hybrid operating room.

The hospital sits on a brown field site adjacent to Nottingham City Airport. The airport was opened in 1930 and was utilised by the RAF during the Second World War. The extensive runway and eighteen grade II listed brick pillboxes remain and indeed one pill box sits within the development boundary and is integrated within the proposals.

The design of the hospital aims to be sympathetic to its setting and aspires to create strong links with the new and existing landscape. As such, a simple palette of natural materials including buff brick, timber and glass has been used throughout. Full height windows allow patients in bed to see out, creating links to the landscape and maximising patient comfort.

The hospital includes photovoltaic panels, a heat recovery system, LED lighting with daylight linked controls and sustainable drainage system.
